Ubuntu: rSync without git subdirectory

Ubuntu: rSync without git subdirectory
Previously I blogged about a good backup/sync tool rSync.

While using it, I faced some problems. It replaced my .git repository and there by affected my git repo settings.
I found a way to exclude sync'ing some files/folders. For this we have to use --exclude option. To exclude git sub-directory:
rsync -a --exclude='.git/'
 And to include some specific files, (Eg: 'c' files)
rsync -a --include='*.c/'
